New iPhones Expected to Go on Sale Sept. 20

It seems pretty certain that Apple will host an event September 10 to announce new iPhones. And now new evidence suggests that those iPhones will go on sale Friday, September 20. The evidence? Both AT&T and T-Mobile have told their employees that nobody can take vacation time the weekend of September 20. This usually happens when a new iPhone launches: All hands are needed on deck because of the huge crowds.

Meanwhile, more images and videos are appearing online of the casings of the new phones. The first video below shows the casing for the champagne-colored iPhone 5S, and gives an in-depth comparison with the iPhone 5. A helpful article on CNET gives an overview of the features expected in the iPhone 5S, including a fingerprint sensor, 30-percent faster processor, new camera, and new flash.

The second video shows the casing from the graphite and black-colored iPhone 5S, as well as a casing from the forthcoming iPad mini, which many expect to arrive in October. It helpfully compares side by side the new graphite/black iPhone with a slate/black iPhone 5 so you can see the difference in shade.
